sims 3 stuck on finalizing and unknown error

i've had sims 3 since 2015 but i havent played it in 2 years, but i decided i just wanted to play and i had to reinstall the base game and all of my expansion packs. when i did that some got stuck on finalizing. but before i reinstalled the expansion packs the base game worked on its own. (i have a mac) so i searched it up and thought late night was my problem, i did everything i found on the internet. i uninstalled and reinstalled the base game and the expansion packs. i reset origin, i went into the files and copy and pasted and everything. but nothing seems to work. i got rid of the finalizing problem and now its saying "unknown error"

@jaitrishellee  Please list all the packs you currently have installed, and any that you previously had installed but don't right now.  Please also list the full specs of your Mac, as described here:


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
